Riversweep 2015

Thank you to the 50+ people who came out yesterday to clean up Denning's Point in Beacon! Between our site and Riverfront Park, we collected 2410 lbs of material, which includes 43 bags of trash, 39 bags of recycling, 13 tires, scrap metal, wood and rigid plastics.

Thank you to Riverkeeper for organizing the yearly riversweep and making it so easy for us, even helping us get bags from American Rivers. Dana Gulley - you are a powerhouse and we can't thank you enough for all your work in planning this event with 100+ sites from NYC to Troy!

Thank you to Peoples Bicycle for keeping our bikes rolling strong. Thank you to The Home Depot for donating gloves for our 100+ volunteers (between the 2 sites). The biggest thanks of all goes to the volunteers who make this event so powerful. Last year, 85 sites removed 31 tons from the Hudson's shores: this year, 103 sites removed over 40 tons, with the help of over 2000 volunteers. We're proud to be a part of this impact, and look forward to doing it again next year!
